  • EZ Prints, Inc. - a privately held venture-backed light manufacturing company. Prior to founding Patriot Self Storage, Hal was the Chief Operating Officer and Vice President of Finance for EZ Prints, Inc. During his tenure, the company grew revenues from $4.3MM to over $30MM while increasing headcount from 25 to over 100 employees. The company was sold to Café Press (NASDAQ: PRSS).   

Outside of work, Hal enjoys spending time with his wife and son golfing, fishing, cheering for Navy football, and watching rugby.  He is a board member of the Boys and Girls Club of Sarasota County and a prior board member of Pine View School.
